Libratone Q Adapt On-Ear review


Excellent noise cancelling headphones for fashionistas

Beautiful design ; Adjustable noise cancellation ; Excellent battery life

Finicky touchpad ; Noise cancellation hiss

The Libratone Q Adapt On-Ears are a unique set of noise cancelling headphones that look great and sound good. The Q Adapt On-Ears offer useful features like adjustable ACN, auto-play/pause and Hush mode, making them a good choice for audiophiles and...

Libratone Q Adapt On-Ear


The attractive Libratone Q Adapt On-Ear headphones deliver above-average noise cancellation and quality Bluetooth audio at a relatively affordable price.

Strong, bass-forward, sculpted sound signature. Quality noise cancellation. App-based control.

On-ear controls are easy to accidentally press. Sculpted sound signature not for purists.

The Q Adapt On-Ear are a solid, ambitious debut in the headphone department from Libratone. The noise cancellation is better than average, the audio performance is strong, if very sculpted, and the design is attractive and comfortable. The best...

Libratone Q Adapt On-Ear


The Libratone Q Adapt On-Ear are petite noise-cancelling headphones. Typical of Libratone, they have a Scandinavian sensibility and a cute look that doesn't make them seem made for a particular gender or “type” of person.

Smart-looking noise-cancelling wireless headphones that don’t quite have the dynamism of the best.

Libratone Q Adapt On-Ear review


Libratone's first on-ear headphones are packed with great ideas...

Clean, easy-going and smooth performance ; Open presentation ; Comfortable build and design ; Good control app

Lack outright detail, dynamism and punch ; Need better timing and control ; Fiddly, unresponsive touch controls ; Rivals offer better noise-cancellation

Plenty of good ideas, but Libratone needs to refine its sound and features to compete with the best

Libratone Q Adapt On Ear review: Scandi-chic headphones that are almost great


Incredibly effective active noise cancellation, but the fit and erratic auto-pause facility undermine these headphones' appeal

Effective noise cancellation ; Packed with features ; Chic looks

Fit isn't great ; Auto-pause and -resume not entirely reliable

I really wanted to like these headphones; in fact, I do like them a lot – but only when they stay on my head.

A stylish design and wireless Bluetooth technology make the Libratone Q-Adapt on-ear headphones an attractive prospect. They also have adjustable noise cancelling, so you can choose how much of the outside world you want to let in, but do they sound...

Libratone Q Adapt On Ear Review: Solid Noise-Cancelling Headphones


If you want a pair of noise-cancelling headphones for under $300, Libratone's wireless Q Adapt On Ear headset is a good performer. However, for the same $250 price tag, you can get your hands on the Fiil Canviis, which has better ANC and sound quality,...

Great sound quality ; Lightweight and compact design ; Extremely comfortable ; Convenient proximity sensor and touch panel ; Unique app offerings

Active noise cancellation needs work ; Competitors have longer battery life and wider Bluetooth range

The Libratone Q Adapt On Ear headphones provide excellent sound quality, style and comfort along with its active noise-cancelling technology for only $250.

Libratone Q-Adapt On-Ear


Libratones første hodetelefoner gir deg råd til ro på reisen.

Libratone Q-Adapt On-Ear fortjener ros både for sin enkle og elegante design og sin velfungerende støyreduksjon. Og så en ekstra fjær i hatten for å gjøre det til en rimelig pris. Den variable støyreduksjonen er en spennende nyskapelse, selv om de...

Test: Libratone Q Adapt On-Ear


Libratones hörlurar bjuder på bra ljud och brusreducering i fyra steg.

Headset med brusreducering är inte längre lika exklusiva som de var för ett par år sedan, men vill du ha ett par snygga och väldesignade klaffar som dessutom ger bra brusreducering är det här ett bra val bland flera.
